Details :

In recent years, building information modelling (BIM) has been a mandated application in Government Capital works projects with project estimates more than $30 Million.  There are anticipated benefits of using BIM in project management at design and construction stages to more sophisticated BIM uses on digital fabrication and asset management.

The BIM Team Leader of the BIM team in a Government Capital works project is mandated to be a CIC-Certified BIM Manager with effect from 1 July 2021 with an aim of implementing BIM effectively in the whole built asset life cycle.  From 1 July 2022, the BIM Coordinators in the BIM team should either be a CIC-Certified BIM Coordinator or shall have completed the CIC-accredited BIM Coordinator course.

Apart from the Government BIM projects, private developers have also begun to adopt BIM in their projects, this has escalated the demand for certified BIM personnel.

Should quantity surveyors need to get BIM qualifications?  If yes, how to get them?  Sunny will give a brief on the CIC BIM Certification and Accreditation Schemes which is the first scheme in Hong Kong to certify BIM Managers and Coordinators.
